Who really likes cleaning the house? Honestly?
Even if we do not enjoy cleaning as much as we should we still have to do it so why not do it in the easiest way possible? Check out these 36 hacks that will make things so much easier.
1. Clean your mattress.
We spend a lot of time on our mattress and there isn’t really any way to wash it. Or is there? Pour vodka into a spray bottle, spritz lightly across your mattress and leave it to air-dry. The alcohol kills odor-causing bacteria while it disinfects the mattress.
2. Clean your microwave in 5 minutes.
Cut a couple of lemons in half and put in a glass dish with water. Zap until the water starts to boil. Let it sit and steam for a minute before opening. The dirtiness can now be wiped away with little effort.
3. Clean your ceiling fan.
Put an old pillowcase over one fan blade at a time and slowly wipe it backward. The blade will be clean and the dust will be trapped inside (instead of in your face).
4. Clean those grease stains.
Do you have greasy fingerprints around the house? Cover the stains with white chalk, wait a few minutes and then wipe the chalk away with a damp cloth. This should work on your clothes as well.
5. Dry wet shoes and gloves quickly.
Are your shoes wet from the rain or snow? Place some crumpled newspaper inside to soak it all up. A sachet of plain uncooked rice works as well.
